Carbondale, PA part-time cop Paul Thiel of Jermyn, PA turned himself in on Friday on charges he beat up an unarmed man he handcuffed. He was charged with simple assault and official oppression.
When he was confronted by his Captain, he told the Captain that he needed to use force to subdue Gary Yates, but that is a boldface lie, cause the detainment room videotape shows the lunatic cop ruthlessly beating Gary Yates with a baton strike across his face and the back of his hand.
A Magistrate released the lunatic cop on $5,000 unsecured bail. It is unknown if Carbondale has fired the lunatic or suspended him http://thetimes-tribune.com/news/carbondale-cop-turns-self-in-for-beating-handcuffed-man-1.1691419
